You and your child can make homemade Valentine’s Day cards. Get some red, white and pink construction paper. Fold each of the paper in half, long ways. Cut a half of a heart out of each of the papers in sizes small, medium and large.
Glue the medium onto the large and the small onto the medium. Fold the paper so that the hearts are on the inside, this way when the recipient opens the cards they will see three whole hearts. In the center of the heart have your child write their special message.
You can take a large white candle and some small heart shaped candles and attach them together. This way the large white candle will have small heart shaped candles attached to it. How you do this is to heat a sewing needle held in pliers, then stick the hot sewing needle 3/4 of the way into the white candle.
Remove the wicks out of the small heart shaped candles and then you melt the hole in the bottom of the heart shaped candle so that it closes, allow the candle to cool a bit and then push the heart shaped candle onto the remaining part of the needle that is sticking out of the white candle. Now you have a large white candle decorated with little hearts. You will have to do most of the work on this craft if your child is young.
Purchase a small glass globe candle holder, a small glass candle holder that will fit into the glass globe, a couple boxes of Valentine’s heart shaped candy and a tea candle.
They sell the candles and candle holders in the craft department of Walmart. You can find the candy at Walmart, or most other stores. Put the Valentine’s heart shaped candy into the glass globe, then place the small glass candle holder into the glass globe and add the tea candle.
Now you have a beautiful heart filled candle to display in your home for Valentine’s Day. You can even light this candle. The heart shaped candies are in a separate glass container than the tea candle, so you won’t have to worry about hot wax or flame reaching the candies.
It’s easy to come up with your own Valentine’s Day crafts. Anything that is a heart or can be turned into a heart can be transformed into a Valentine’s Day craft that you can do with your children.
